More Lights

More white lights are always a good idea. Sam told me this just before he turned two. It stuck and became a guiding principle when decorating for Christmas. Each year we add more strands of white lights.

I was beginning to think this approach may be a bit ridiculous, not to mention superfluous, until I was walking down the steps and the sparkle from more white lights reminded me to shine.

I love them. I love the way they are little yet mighty. The way they come together, all of these little lights, to make the world brighter. I love the way they shine.

Even more, I love the way they remind me that my little shine can be mighty when it works together with other lights.

Yes, more lights are always a good idea.
